We ban people based on the rules they agreed to adhere to, we have talks with people before we ban them to hopefully steer them into a future without them being banned. But there comes a point where we have to bite the bullet and get rid of people because they cause numerous issues and are detrimental to the page at large.

I'm unfortunately familiar with every aspect of what you just described

I'm with you on your stance on the whiners

I was under the impression that all how mods/admins are on every site, well color me shocked.

In all seriousness, I could only imagine the bs y'all have to put up with. Seems like it would be a very annoying and thankless job. Thx for keeping this shitshow functioning guys.


What gets me agitated and furious the most is when people try to control my own life, such as taste of interests, my diet, my money management, so forth. My granny's done this lately; and even my dad doesn't like her bossing me about on that nonsense. :I

Oh deer.

can't say i'm surprised to hear that windows is involved. it's been known for decades that microsoft works with the NSA.

"Late Friday, Microsoft said the exploits had been patched in previous updates,"

sure, i believe you...not! >.> i wonder if the W10 spyware OS issue has been fixed. you know, the problem where they're gathering mountains of data on anyone who so much as touches the OS.

oh, who am i kidding? of course it hasn't as that was likely a main intent behind the design of W10. so long as the system keeps working, no one gives a shit about all that info being gathered or the very likely shady things it's being used for.

actually, i bet microsoft still puts certain exploits and backdoor shit in new versions of windows specifically for the NSA. and that's no conspiracy theory.

that group named, Shadow Brokers. i wonder if that was inspired by the character in the Mass Effect game or just something they came up with on their own. it does seem like an interesting coincidence in the latter case.

tbh, unless it's something BIG like when the equation group got exposed, this stuff doesn't bother me much.

ERMERGERD, THE NSA IS SPYING ON US! *dons tin foil hat* yeah...except pretty much everyone knows that. that's not so much a conspiracy theory as it is an unpleasant fact. and microsoft helps them with the Windows OS. >.>

edit: ok, i am getting real sick and tired of your BS, sony. i don't give a FUCK about how YOU want me to use this PS4. if I want to listen to music off my mp3 player via the consoles media player during a game then that is MY choice. the damned devs can fuck off with this shit.

oh and after a system update not too long ago, the media player is also now locked to all users who don't have a PSN account.

and before someone says to unplug the mp3 player and listen to it that way, stop and think for a moment: how can i listen to BOTH the in-game audio AND music from my mp3 which is now unplugged using a single set of headphones?

this "giving the devs full control over what they can block" on the PS4 has got to be one of THE dumbest things to EVER happen to game consoles.

wanna record and share a cutscene? oops, can't because it's a blocked scene. screenshots are out for the same reason.

media player? blocked

hell, Atlus all but gave a C&D to streamers everywhere regarding Persona 5 recently.

this shit makes me wonder if i should've tried for a new computer instead of a ps4 on christmas. and people like to say consoles are superior to PC...what a joke.

gamefaqs forum post on this problem

looks like ALL in-game audio is muted when streaming the game too. (wtf, KOEI?)

i like a fair number of the games on it so far but what sony did with the PS4 is...it's one of the dumbest things i've ever seen happen to a game console.

What are you talking about? Shadow Broker is a straightforward name. Somebody who trades information is known as an information broker, while if they work on the blackmarket they'll likely get a name related to black, darkness, shadows, etc.

it could be a coincidence that the group name or it could be a reference. both are possible.

Took me a while to get the gist of what they were saying, but dialogue doesn't really require perfect grammar. It's dialogue, after all.
Worst is as BlueDingo says:

BlueDingo said:

Dialogue has flexibity as far as grammar is concerned, but you should still make it a goal to allow a person to be able to read what you've written. It ain't us Grammar Nazi's you gotta worry about when you fuck that up, it's your own audience.

I'm not a big fan of those types of people either. They tend to forget that a lot of our enemies have nukes too and if we disarm, we'll be opening the door wide open for our enemies to nuke us. The only real way to assure peace is to prepare for war and be ready and willing to wage it at a moment's notice.


A lot of things. Mostly violence (I'm not talking about wars and stuff, I mean thugs, or when the government decides to start killing or sending all the gays to concentration camps, you know what I'm talking about), war crimes (they are separated from violence because war crimes are especially bad in most cases), pedophilia (and all the sexual stuff related to people below 18 really, even if the age of consent in that particular country is like 12) and people who *think* that they are protecting social justice, but actually they are just being assholes to others.
Still, I never attack anyone and always pretend to not care at all. Finally a place where I can say what I think, heh.

dngafk said:

Absolutely. Now, I do think that the benefits of nuclear power are often overstated and its flaws ignored by its proponents, but that's probably because if they give an inch, their opposition would take a mile.

Everyone makes a big deal about nuclear waste, but honestly, solid waste held in a fenced-in location in the middle of the desert is not nearly as bad as pumping countless tons of coal into the air we and everything else breathes. The long-term effects of nuclear power are not going to bite anyone in the ass if there's no one left for them to affect. It pisses me off that so many environmentalists have opposing nuclear above coal on their agenda.


And now that I'm back from the laundry room, I've got another gripe: laundry machines that don't work properly and don't have any signs on them saying "out of order." When I put my clothes in on high temperature for 45 minutes I expect them to be hot and dry when those 45 minutes are up, but instead they're damp and cool to the touch.

And beyond that, all the machines are Maytags. When I was a child they used to advertise Maytag as being so reliable that the Maytag repairman had nothing to do. Nowadays though, the Maytag repairman apparently has so much to do that he never shows up, and when he does he never actually fixes the broken machines because there are so damn many of them.

Washing machines dry clothes now? Every washing machine I've ever used leaves clothes slightly damp.

Not to mention it hurts their credibility.


the fact that whenever the topic of genital mutilation (circumcision) comes up in the news there's rarely ever so much as a mention of the male side of the topic.

sure, FGM is bad but MGM is by no means better.

i was reading through one of Gatestones monthly multiculturalism articles earlier this morning and noticed this in lengthy list of topics:

"March 7. The National Health Service (NHS) revealed that there were 2,332 new cases of female genital mutilation (FGM) in Britain between October and December 2016. That brought the total of new cases in 2016 to nearly 5,500."

not even the slightest hint of MGM statistics anywhere and they DO know it happens to both males and females. if there's one thing i definitely find offensive, it's that willful ignorance regarding a horrible, completely unnecessary, medical procedure.

and it doesn't matter which source the news comes from, it's almost always focused entirely on the female side of the problem.

actually, who knows if these FGM numbers are even accurate. everyone knows the government, police, and others try to suppress a LOT of information to some extent.

They also avoid revealing who exactly is doing most of the FGM and who is doing the most extreme forms of MGM. Here's a hint.

Laundry machine and washing machine mean the same thing. Perhaps she's talking about a washer-dryer which does both?
